Covid-19 Information for Parents

From 19th August

Readiness level: YELLOW

This means: Section meetings can take place outdoors and indoors. Residential activities may take place.

Group sizes and limitations: 

  • All non-residential activities (including young people, Scout Network and adult only groups): Activities involving young people: No limit on group size, although all activities must be able to safely manage the risk of transmission of COVID and, if this is not possible, they must not take place. Outdoor activities are still encouraged.
  • Residential activities: Nights away activities may take place using multi occupancy accommodation in tents/rooms with no limit of numbers, based on the new Covid-19 Protection beyond Level zero at the home local authority.  Scout ratios for both indoors and outdoors must be applied. COVID measures such as face coverings indoors and good hygiene remain in place (even overnight) and lateral flow testing is strongly recommended. Further guidance in the planning a COVID-safe nights away in 2021.
